Get Greater Value from Survey Text

Transform unstructured survey data into quantitative data—without having to read text responses word for word. Specifically designed for survey text, SPSS Text Analysis for Surveys is based on our powerful natural language processing (NLP) software technologies.

Business users benefit because they gain insight into people's thoughts, attitudes, and opinions—and can more easily meet their needs.

Survey analysts can provide greater value to business users and survey research clients without the drudgery and expense associated with manual coding.
